TartanDrive 2.0 provides more modalities and the infrastructure to facilitate self-supervised learning.


We present TartanDrive 2.0, a large-scale off-road driving dataset for self-supervised learning tasks. In 2021 we released TartanDrive 1.0, which is one of the largest datasets for off-road terrain. As a follow-up to our original dataset, we collected seven hours of data at speeds of up to 15m/s with the addition of three new LiDAR sensors alongside the original camera, inertial, GPS, and proprioceptive sensors. We also release the tools we use for collecting, processing, and querying the data, including our metadata system designed to further the utility of our data. Custom infrastructure allows end users to reconfigure the data to cater to their own platforms. These tools and infrastructure alongside the dataset are useful for a variety of tasks in the field of off-road autonomy and, by releasing them, we encourage collaborative data aggregation. These resources lower the barrier to entry to utilizing large-scale datasets, thereby helping facilitate the advancement of robotics in areas such as self-supervised learning, multi-modal perception, inverse reinforcement learning, and representation learning.
